These things take a lot of time to do,and we really need to test as much as possible before release,on the bright side,once it does get released for beta testing by you guys,I think you will approve of the modification,and the time it has taken to get us to this stage,in the games on going development.

This is for Warspite1.Your name sake Warspite in all her glory.

I took a photo off this miniature that I have in my warship collection,this is the British Dreadnought/Battleship Queen Elizabeth class,I have spent a good few hours, pain stakingly doing the art,and adding it to the game,all in 3D.I hope you guys approve,I'm not saying this art will make it into the game for general release,if it does then fantastic,if not well I will make that art freely available to anyone who wants to use it.Oh by the way,I'm also working on 3D art for the German navy as well as other Nations watch this space.

$%^& ME!!!

That is fantastic kirk23 .

So a plea /request /beg /bribe /threaten to Lord Zimoa - THIS WORK HAS TO BE IN THE OFFICIAL PATCH. FOR THOSE OF US WITH A LOVE, A PASSION, FOR HISTORY, PLEASE DO WHATEVER YOU CAN TO ALLOW THIS UPGRADE IN THE GAME. THIS KIND OF WORK JUST ADDS SO MUCH FROM AN AESTHETIC VIEW POINT.

I second what Warspite says: Kirk's Fantastic ship art should definitely be included in the next patch.

Good afternoon Mister Kirk!

Ya know, you got me thinking: Since you brought up the half strength Canadian unit, I was wondering if we could develop half strength units across the board in the production queue? Take a BB or instance, as CP, I may never get enough PP to buy a whole squadron of 10, but enough to purchase a 5 strength squadron and if I could build a 5 strength squadron, would it have half the time to build?

Just thinking, Bob

Hi Bob,the way the game is programmed, your idea off half strength production que units,won't work.Half strength units can join the game as a pre-arranged historical event,like the Canadian units arrival in Britain.When you purchase a new unit,the game works on the principal that a new unit is strength 10.

Naval game fix: The game since first release,has been plagued by a Naval game, that is to all intent and purpose flawed,calling it flawed is being kind lets say.In an effort to correct this historical inbalance,I have added two new unit types to the mix.Pre-Dreadnoughts & Armoured Cruisers.The reason for this is very simple,apart from Britain,Germany & the USA.All other Countries main Battleship in 1914 was the Pre-Dreadnought.Countries like France,Russia,Italy & Austria in 1914,really only had Pre-Dreadnoughts as their main unit at sea.The above 4 Nations,had at the most 2 or 3 new Dreadnought/Battleships each,and when you add them all together you would just manage to create a strength 10 Battleship unit,that the game uses at the present time.Now one of the positives for having Pre-Dreadnoughts in the game,stops gamers who like to use the gamey disband your Battleship fleet option,and re-coupe a huge PP & MP bonus,something for which they are not really intitled too,because they did not buy these big expensive monsters in the first place.If you disband the Pre-Dreadnought unit,you gain 1 MP and thats your lot,these units can't be purchased,because by the time of the war in 1914,no Countries were building them,as they were being replaced by the new more advanced,Dreadnought/Battleship.

The art for the Pre-Dreadnought was created by modding the existing Battleship art,and the art for the Armoured Cruiser was already in the game.

As you can see from this screen shot,the following Countries all start the game with only Pre-Dreadnoughts in their fleets,France,Russia,Austria & Italy.Not until the 1915 & later scenario's,do these Countries start with Dreadnought/Battleships.

Armoured Cruiser: As you can see from this screen shot,these units can't be built or purchased in game,what you start with, that is all you get,they can't be replaced.You can only build the newer cruiser type units,that comes as standard with the game since first release.The reason for the addition of the Armoured Cruiser into the game,was as per the Pre-Dreadnought explanation in my earlier post,in that most of the Countries in 1914,only had Armoured Cruisers,as their main cruiser naval unit,the newer type that the game use's as standard,and the art depicts,is for the new breed of cruiser the Light Cruiser.These two major changes,of adding the Pre-Dreadnought & Armoured Cruiser units to the game,completely rebalances the naval game,in that Britain,Germany & the USA are the dominant powers at sea,and the other powers are now playing catch up.

Dreadnoughts: This is something that has annoyed me more than anything else, since I first started playing the game,in 1914 Battleships were called DREADNOUGHTS,no question about it,so this major error has be corrected,they are DREADNOUGHTS not Battleships OK!


HMS Dreadnought: The Ship That Sparked an Arms Race!


The Most Powerful War Machine on Earth

Imagine a weapon which was so powerful that its mere existence rendered all other weapons of its kind obsolete. What would be the response? Catch up or lose your position forever. This was the scramble caused by HMS Dreadnought. Before World War 1 started there was an arms race between Britain and Germany. The spark for the race was this ship, and the implications frightening in retrospect.

After this ship was launched and fitted out her name would become synonymous with battleships. Even now, historians refer to the pre and post Dreadnought ships...and battleships are known as Dreadnoughts.

Hi Kirk,

I think what you are doing on the naval side of the game is great, I just hope that we get to see these changes (and your others) in the next patch.

Hi Kirk!

Let me ask this: Are these new old ships in addition to the current naval OOB? Are they upgradable? Were they not, more susceptible to torpedo attacks? Also, could we/you do something on this line of thought with artillery (Krupp guns)? For I believe; that the Entente did not have anything comparable at the beginning of the war ( this is not a demand, just a thought to kick around).

Just thinking, Bob

P.S. In the current game CP PP, it is practically impossible to build new BBs, almost the same could be said for Entente, with the exception of Britain, depending on it's priority .

Sorry for not being around on the forums recently guys,but as you know I have been busy with the new 1.6 game play patch,here is an update on its progress,well I'm now writing out the change log for all the enhancements,to the game play.Here is a screen shot of one of them,the Naval AI has been to school and learned some new tactics.Naval AI will no longer put up with this close blockade nonsense,I mean this is not 1815 with Nelson in command of the Victory.

I have much more art to do,so that all the Countries with waarships,have the same style off new art,for their Country specific warship designs.I will make this new art freely available as an option,because when all the art is done,you will just need to overwrite the standard art that comes with the game.

But what I have done,since the old level 1 Cruiser art,was in fact an Armoured Cruiser,I used that art for the Armoured Cruiser ship type,I have modified the art used for the standard Level 2 Cruiser,and this new art is for a level 1 Light Cruiser,as shown in this screen shot.

Hi Grzegorz,
I'm not the only one,but we are a small dedicated team,who's goal is to improve the game for all,and hopefully when you all get to play the new 1.6 beta patch soon,you will agree that the game is indeed improving.
